Monkey Man transcribed by John Goddard

[Verse 1]
               E
I'm a flea-bit peanut monkey, all my friends are junkies
 C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4
(that's not really true)
               E
I'm a cold Italian pizza, I could use a lemon squeezer
 C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4
(like you do)
                         A
I've been bit and I've been tossed around
     B
by every she-cat in this town
    C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4
(have you babe?)

[Chorus]
A                                                                    B
I am just a monkey man I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

[Instrumental]
C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4

[Verse 2]
         E
I was bitten by a boar, I was gouged and I was gored
 C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4
(I went along too)
E
I'm a sack of broken eggs, I always have an unmade bed
 C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4
(don't you?)
          A                                                                        B
Well I hope we're not too Messianic or a trifle too satanic
 C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4
(love to play the blues)

[Chorus]
A                                                            B
I am just a monkey man, glad you are a monkey woman too babe

[Instrumental]
C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4  (x16)

[Middle Eight]

E  B A B

E  B A B
E  B A B
               C#       C#sus4      C#     C#sus4   ad lib
I'm a monkey........etc.

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. All the chords were wrong, so was the pitch, sounds absolutely no where near like the actual record. Shameful tab.

dude use the tridads ... ex C# triad xxx1099 bend the G-10^12r (hint a la chuck berry riff's) bend up a step let ring and release watch the live vid you'll see .... also remember they tune down most of the time, google open D tuning

C# E A D G B e
e-9 | | | | 9 9
B-9 | | | | | |
G-10 | | |10 | |

check out the C# minor pentatonic

e-9--12
B-9--12
G-9-11
D-9-11
A-9-11
E-9--12

good luck annnnnnnnd have fun
